Money ain't a problem when you've got it

Today, I listened as my ridiculously wealthy friend excitedly rambled on and on about her latest shopping trip. This is the same friend who owes me £150, and accused me of being insensitive for asking her to repay it at some point. FML

OP: "[Punch] Where's my money?! [punch even more] You gonna give me my money? Where's my money, man?! Where's the money, man?! Yeah, you like that?! That feel good?! [holds her head in toilet water] Where's the money, man?! Where's my money?! You got till five o'clock. You hear me?! You got till 5 o'clock!"
Friend: "You freakin' psychopath!"
OP: "Yeah, clean yourself up." [throws a towel at her]

What's wrong with wealthy people?? Most wealthy people work very hard for their wealth. Not the girl who owes OP money of course, but you're making a big generalization hating on wealthy people.

I don't see why anyone should be judged on their wealth. If they're wealthy, good for them. If they're not, that's unfortunate. But as long as you're trying your hardest, you'll get what you deserve.
Although, I believe that you shouldn't brag no matter what you've got, and in OP's case, since she technically owes OP, she should still repay her.

Because some of those rich people who "worked so hard" usually didn't. They had rich relatives who'd spoil them rotten. And when they died they left all that money to their snotty grandkids. Or half those rich people are rappers/singers/actors who dont give half a damn bout anyone but themselves or family. They believe themselves above society just because they have $, when WE THE AVERAGE AMERICAN MADE THEM THAT RICH. that's what's wrong with rich people

111, so what you're trying to say is that, just because your profession is acting or singing, you don't deserve the money you have, but if you're like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs who've earned their money over many many years, it's better? Those singers and actors still deserve what they have. That's their profession and good for them for doing well at it. Plus, just because they have money, does not mean they have to go out and help everyone less fortunate then them, although many do donate to charities. They worked for what they have, so they shouldn't feel obliged to care for everyone less fortunate.

And I know I'm gonna get thumbed down by those who just think no one should be rich, but I know the point I'm trying to get across.

There are two types of rich people.: people who worked hard for their money (Steve Wozniak) and those who screw people out of money (Wall Street CEOs). Et voila!

There seriously is a big problem when 1% of the population (US or world) has, what, 90+% of the wealth. Hard work or not. A construction worker works his/her ass off whist corporate CEOs vacation in Tahiti. I'm not saying there shouldn't be rich people. But getting $400 million dollars for being CEO of a company is a bit excessive.

@52 I have been yelled at by my mother because I bought my friend two $20 shirts. Said friend both paid me back, and is my very best friend. One of my other 'friends' let her dog chew up a pair of headphones I bought her when she 'lost' her wallet. And yet I routinely lend out money.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's why I named my username "Offensive". Based on older experiences, almost always somebody would find what I wrote offensive and hence deemed me a "troll" - so now I just flow with it. In any case, I get the joke... aside from that I thought of it and named myself after it. Heh.

Jokes aside, I'm not sure why I got -7 rating. While it is very annoying to lose a huge amount of money because you gave them a "friend", you'll have to learn not to give money somehow, and this should be such an experience. School of hard knocks, isn't it?

Your name is quite awesome. I didn't contribute to your -7 for the record. Any way, yeah that money should be yours OP. Seriously, I can't believe the ego of rich people like that. Get it back or take legal action (whatever seems necessary to you).

Their born assholes what? Please tell me, I'm dying to know.

And you're wrong. Plenty of rich people are very generous. Same goes for poor people. Money has only a little to do with character development.

I hate it when anyone acts like an asshole. In this case, however, OP would be justified.

I know I've put this out here before but if you value the friendship, suck it up as an expensive lesson learned. If you care more for your money, tell her to pay up or she'll hear from your solicitor.

Next time, hold onto any money you can't afford to lose.

40, by the sounds of it you don't deserve it anyway. You don't ask for money, you can ask for a loan though, it's then up to the person giving it to you to say 'hey, you need that more than me, keep it', or 'I worked hard for that, pay me back when you can'. But don't ever think that just because that person can 'afford' it, they should give you free stuff/money.
